Face masks are longer obligatory on flights and in airports across EU countries from next week.
The EU Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) said that the move was in line with changing policies on public transport across Europe.
"From next week, face masks will no longer need to be mandatory in air travel in all cases, broadly aligning with the changing requirements of national authorities across Europe for public transport," EASA Executive Director Patrick Ky said.
It is a relief to all of us that we are finally reaching a stage in the pandemic where we can start to relax the health-safety measures," he added.
US airlines got rid of masks in April, but EASA said that rules for masks "will continue to vary by airline".
